. if they know that now, it could change everything. >>> and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, don't believe the hype. all the gops talk about change is just that. talk. a bunch of hot air. today, almost every single republican in the house voted for paul ryan's budget. the budget that would lower taxes for the rich, cut programs for the poor, and end medicare as we know it. it's unbelievable just three days ago the rnc rolled oh ut a plan to reboot the party, claiming that they will change the public's view that they only care about the rich. >> the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately, continues to grow. that's frustrating. we want to lift people up from poverty. >> lift people up out of poverty? really? what about voting for ryan's budget today, republicans endorsed a plan to give every millionaire in the country a $200,000 tax cut. while slashing the safety net for the poor. doesn't sound like change to me. republicans claim they want to
a change in tone. way to open the door to compromise. what? oh, wait. i'm being told that we got out of the video too soon. let's play the last bit. i'm sure it's great. >> but if the president consists on tax hikes, i don't think we're going to get very far. >> no new taxes. read my lips. i think we see why speaker boehner and his friend mcconnell are dining alone. >>> joining me now are angela rye and nia spmalika henderson. is the gop leadership the real problem here? >> absolutely. reverend al, when you look at what has happened from last night until even this morning, you saw the gop leave dinner with president obama and some of them went straight to the senate floor and the tone even changed then. then, this morning, you have senator mccain and senator graham almost berating rand paul from the night before. i think that you're seeing a real shiflt. shift you're seeing speaker boehner say that he is the hopeful and looking forward to this. this is the same guy that was strugdlie in strugling with the term compromise. i don't think it's only the president at all. all he's doing i
about the change in politics of gun control for these red state democrats. you're a democratic leader in the congress. look at this and give me your response. >> they are under a the lot of pressure to buck their own party in pursuit of keeping the democratic majority. >> i would want senator reid to be very careful because we learned from last year's elections that a decade ago, two decades ago is no longer what some of those states in terms of the electorate has become. and i think you could galvanize your vote if you took some stands in some of those states. >> congressman? >> look, the way the mayor's doing this is the way he ought to do it. i'm a democrat. i want democrats to be in a majority. but there comes a time when politics must not supersede that which is right. the majority of us in this country believes the direction we're going in terms of universal background checks is the right thing to do. if some democrats fall or stand in the way, so be it. i want to be in the majority. it's not fun in the minority. but i also would like to have a society where we're not scheduling
of their dollars when poor people are paying a disproportionate amount. so david throw said things don't change, we do. there's going to have to be some changes going on with individuals and their philosophies if we're going to bring this nation around to propelling this growth or we're going to fall down again because they are not going to move. >> when you look at the fact that speaker boehner wrote and this is an op-ed that says, obama's outreach is nice but where's the leadership? if we're going to find bipartisan solutions, the president will have to move beyond the same proposals as democrat democratic dogma. aren't they saying, there can be an agreement as long as everybody agrees with me? >> yes, he is. but he's trying to do other things with these kinds of press conferences and op-eds. by the way, you spent plenty of time with the president. i have, too. saying he's not a leadership is going to get under your skin. that's a cheap shot. he doesn't care. he knows who he is and he's the president of the united states. john boehner knows very well indeed and all of the republican leaders know
to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the more the gop changes, the more it stays the same. today, the bright new republican superstar, senator ted cruz, put forward a bold new plan full of original ideas to save the gop. >> tomorrow is the three-year anniversary of the passage of obama care. it should be repealed. >> repeal obama care? are you kidding me? that's the big idea? for all the soul searching republicans claim they are doing, they still don't realize that they are out of touch. today the head of the republican national committee insisted the problems, not their policies, it's their tone. >> it's not necessarily what you see but it's how you say it and if you go around and say a lot of biologically stupid things. >> right. >> and you poison the well and you create a caricature or you allow a caricature to become reality, i think it hurts your ability to win an election. >> republicans are lost. they haven't learned anything. they are just as clueless now as they were back during the far right circus of the republican national convention and presidential primary. today, w
and the middle class. more v.i.p. treatment for the rich, so much for that big gop change of heart. here's a news flash for congressman ryan. you lost the election. americans rejected your priorities and just to be sure i'm not imagining all of this, we pulled the table of election night. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. his supporters and his campaign also deserve congratulations. >> that's your running mate conceding the election and that's you right there. we put an arrow on the tape so you wouldn't miss yourself. there's you giving a nice big hug to the second place winner on your ticket. see, you knew i wasn't making it up and yet that night must not have sunk in because in his latest budget, wrong ray ryan calls for repealing the president's health care law again. >> are you saying that as part of your budget you would repeal, you assume the repeal of obama care? >> yes. >> well, that's not going to happen. >> well, we believe it should. >> you believe it should be repealed but what about the more than 65 million americans who voted for the president
there was no drinking, good friday, christmas day and st. patrick's day. so we've kind of changed that. >> it's kind of like pizza got big in italy when it got big here. >> thank you senator mark daly. >>> that's "hardball" for now. "politics nation with al sharpton, starts right now. 6. >>> in the fourth months since the election, republicans have tried everything to rebrand themselves. they've been told to stop being the stupid party. they've conducted polls. they've gone on retreats, and now after all that self-examination, the rnc is out with 100-page report on what went wrong in 2012. it's been finding voters said the party is, quote, scary. that's just the tip of the iceberg. >> but the report notes that the way we communicate or principles isn't resonating widely enough. focus groups described our party as narrow-minded, out of touch, and, quote, stuffy old men. the perception that we're the party of the rich unfortunately continues to grow. >> scary, narrow-minded, out of touch, stuffy old men. i think they've got it this time. the first step is admitting you have a problem. so how do they p
the grassroots on collected officials, mark, can we make real change and is that the hope your ad campaign hopes to stimulate? >> absolutely. look, there are not a lot of times that i can think of. in fact, i'm not sure i can think of any time when 90% of the public, after a mass tragedy, felt that they knew what the solution was and we're telling members of congress that they needed to pass it when it didn't happen. so if members of congress think that they can reject something like background checks, which most people already take when they buy a gun at a license dealer but criminals are able to avoid and if you expanded that system, you can save a lot of lives, i think they ignore that and they are going to have a hard time explaining it when the next mass shooting happens because we know it will and when they face the public in november of 14. >> now, miss cowley, when you look at the fact that you and other parents deal with this pain every day -- it's nice when we go to the white house but certainly you would have not have wanted to go under these circumstances and when you and others that
what they are, they don't get to change the definition. >> what about the ones that immigrate to this country that allows multiple spouses? >> if same sex fits the bill of the contract, then everything fits the bill and at some point who's to say you cannot have sex with a child at some point? >> how about condemning that language? today another reminder the gop has gone from the party of lincoln to the party of limbaugh. joining me now is congressman bill nadler, democrat from new york and melissa harris-perry. thank you both for being here. >> absolutely. >> congressman, as we showed, your republican colleagues in the house came out strong condemning and taking their shots at congressman young's comments today. but we keep seeing this ugliness come out. where do you see this rebranding we keep hearing about? >> well, they are trying but the problem is that it's one thing to change your rhetoric when you don't change your beliefs and you don't change your practice and your rhetoric is hard to follow then because you don't remember it. you have to remember -- it's like someone

ryan when you think of him now apparently changing his commitment on medicare, let me show you first what he said last year about the safety net. this is paul ryan. >> we don't want to turn this safety net into a hammock that allows able-bodied people on complacency. we need to have that dynamic economy returned. you do that by growing the economy, getting people a hand up not a hand out. teach a man to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> don't simply feed fish. the quote, paul, is teach a man how to fish -- don't give a man a fish, teach a man to fish and he eats forever. but this is a guy that they're going to make the point man on medicare and the safety net? >> well, listen. first of all, we need to teach corporate america how to fish, right? because what we have is kind of a corporate socialism that through tax loopholes and tax breaks allows wall street to excel. president obama has been great for business in both terms thus far considering the global market forces at work here. the stock market does well, main street not so well. the interesting th
ryan. so much for change you can believe in. republicans refuse to accept that their policies were rejected in november. and none more so than wrong way ryan. >> you know, it's really pretty simple. we stop spending money we don't have. our debt is a threat to this country. we have to tackle this problem before it tackles us. >> no. on november 6th, americans said no to that. no to cuts, cuts, cuts mentality. we refused it. we shot it down, we nixed it, declined it, renounced it, dismissed it. i don't know how many more ways republicans need me to say it, yet despite that, the gop keeps offering up the same slash and burn policies that gut the middle class. take ryan's budget, it's so severe worth to the lowest level since 1948. 1948. that's literally rolling back the clock. this is the same party that rails about white house tours. but it gnaws automatic budget cuts. well, they should ignore the fact that the u.s. forest service will have to cut 505 firefighters. they should ignore the fact that food programs for seniors are getting cut in georgia. or that the head start programs
-raiser inside of this florida mansion and he had no idea his life and his campaign was about to change forever. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right, there are 47% who are with him who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> 47% of americans were victims who believe their involvement has a responsibility to take care of them. he wasn't going to worry about them. the damage control started right away. >> good evening. i understand that there's a video that's been on the internet for a few weeks that has attracted some attention and i thought i'd make some comments about it. >> you're not stepping away from anything you said in this video, you're not backing away from anything, and do you worry you've offended this 47% w
. whether he's going to cpac or not is not really changing that. >> so he can understand why cpac didn't invite him. but he loves christie. i mean, can bush be the one to get some balance and lead this party out of the wilderness, so to speak? >> well, i think your question answers itself. can bush be the one. i think it's over for the bush family. they've spent more time talking about how bad the bush years were, almost how bad the obama years have been. the very grass roots have as much as a kwaurl with george w. bush as they do with barack obama. i can't believe that the republican party doesn't have somebody not named bush who can lead them out of this problem. i think we see him starting to position himself with the conservative movement, at least to keep the door open. he's the kind of break out leader who can lead them out of this wilderness that they're in. but he's not going to be able to get through the primary if he can't even get invited to cpac. >> i'm going to have to hold it there. ryan grim, patricia murphy, thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thank you so
a change of heart telling charlie rose i don't think most viewers take the time to actually delve into either the briefs or the legal arguments. they speculate about the judge favors this point rather tlan that point. very few of them understand what the process is, which is to play devil's advocate. well, her answer is a problem. even if most americans couldn't follow the arguments, that's no reason to shut us out. ironically, that logic sounds similar to what was used to justify the voting rights act. and i bet this week, justice sotomayor wishes a camera would have recorded justice scalia's intemp rant remark. he once said since the supreme court of the united states decides the most important issues facing america, its open proceedings should be televised to inform the government how its government operates. specter was right. it's time to televise the court. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.
